Hope you all have had a great holiday break and will be excited to start a new year. January 3rd I will be up at Weber State University to talk to new student teachers (around 130) and new teacher education students (around 100) during their orientation meetings. I give them a little info about what I do and how joining the UEA as a student member offers them savings and benefits down the road. I hand out membership forms and materials. WSU has one of the largest student membership groups in UEA and we hope to organize a unit there along with our strong Future Educators Association Pro Chapter advised by Stephanie Heath.
Also Monday, Jan. 3, our OEA Building Reps will be meeting to listen to our latest proposal from the district. They will be deciding whether or not to present the tentative agreement to the membership at a meeting to be determined.
